If we want to go with car manufacturers for the analogy, Tucker also made 
a car ahead of its time...and people bought them.  Too bad the powerful 
auto manufacturers were able to shut him down.  I would like to compare 
that to today's big media players.

(Back to the push-button transmission, open-wheel race cars, Porsches, 
Ferraris and some Pontiacs come with shifters on the wheel.  I'd say Edsal 
was in good company.)

Ah, making my point, since – aside from Chrysler’s Powermatic 
(push-button) transmission, they are still ahead of their time, 50+ years
